Andy Walshe Interview
One of my favorite podcasts for linking the latest innovations in eliter performance athletes and neuroscience. I am looking forward to the next one.
Expertise and ideas
Great podcast that helps give me ideas for thinking more broadly and perform better. Can't wait for more!
The connection between neuroscience and elite performers is extremely intriguing. As a college athlete I have learned a lot about possible ways to improve myself just by working on my brain.
